My pain medicine is still not enough. I started seeing my new PM Dr in July. We started at 30mg oxycodone 2 a day along with vicodin 7.5 4 a day ( with a muscle relaxer and lunesta). Each time Ive gone back (monthly) he has increased my breakthru meds. Oxycodone 5mg and then oxycodone 10mg 3 a day which Im on now. Its just not nearly enough. Last time I cried in his office. I HATE when I do that! I ve asked to have the oxycontin 3 times a day and he said no. He usually asks me what I want to do. I dont know whether to increase the OXycontin or breakthru meds. Any suggestions?
Does one ususally max out on the Oxy before going for the patch or methodone? Im also going to ask my other PM about a Spinal cord stimulator. I cant go thru another Epi Injection if they are all going to be like my last one. Im still suffering from that one.
